Imafidon, Becomes Youngest Scientist to Get Royal Recognition
Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, one of the top 10 women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), and a pioneering alumna of the multi-record breaking institution (the ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk program) has been honored by the Queen of England for contributions to girls' education and STEM in this year's honors list. Dr Imafidon, the eldest child of the world's most mathematical family, becomes the youngest Scientist to get this award since 1890. #NewYearHonours
Dr Imafidon, was with her family in London when she heard the news of her inclusion in the #NewYearHonours list, and this comes just days after being invited to speak to University leaders including Vice Chancellors in London, Oxford and Cambridge.
BRITISH PRIME MINISTER Theresa May, says, "Congratulations to all those receiving honours today. It's great so many from different walks of life are getting recognition."
Dr ANNE-MARIE O IMAFIDON, says, "I'm ecstatic beyond words. This is God-sent. Nobody would have expected this when my journey started with mathematical and science games at EIE (www.ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk) program a few years ago. This program equipped me with the unique techniques which makes learning fun and it is radically different from school. How I wish my grandparents were here. My grandmothers would give anything for such a rare honour. When they heard on the phone, one of them burst in song after recovering from the initial pleasant shock."

Dr Imafidon, opines, "As the dust is settling down, I'm truly surprised, honoured and humbled. Honestly, this is NOT for me. I dedicate it to my team at Stemettes, volunteers, partners, sponsors, mentors, and my family. This is a sign of what is to come. Inclusivity in the STEM sector and girls' education are important for all - it's an honour and a privilege to lead it."
Anne-Marie's father, a world renowned adviser to governments, presidents and industry leaders, Professor Chris Imafidon, speaking on behalf of the family, said, "If one gets an award, one is very excited but if one's child gets it, that is the biggest joy imaginable. I am still pinching myself. This is more than a MIRACLE! We are sincerely chuffed. When we recover from this shock, the celebrations could last a whole year! It is an extraordinary thing that is happening just because one's optimisation of learning for Mathematics and Sciences. I am forever grateful for the ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk's proven re-engineered learning methodology. It is now an absolute truism, that every child is a genius. Now, it is evident that EIE's unique methodology can revolutionise learning of any subject or concepts. So, we need to work with more parents, schools, colleges and universities to implement these principles and realise the genius in every child, or greatness in everyone."
Professor Imafidon, who now chairs the ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk program, known for aiding inner-city pupils to excel and exceed all expectations, adds, "Science and technology are the future, therefore, is too important to be left to schools alone - it's apt that EIE and similar programs play a vital role."
